The Difference between “Real Love” & “Ego Love.” {Video}

Let’s face it: the definition of love in our society is very different from what actual love is.

If you want proof of this, go see the latest Hollywood romantic blockbuster and then head over to a Pema Chodron or Thich Nhat Hanh talk.

Your mind and heart will be blown away.

What our greatest spiritual teachers say about love is completely opposite to what society says. And maybe that’s why relationships can be so difficult and painful sometimes.

If we all learned the difference between real love and “ego love” (as I like to call it), I truly believe we would live fuller lives.

Real love is incomparable. And once you get a taste of what it feels like, you will never want the fake Hollywood version again.

So, what’s the difference? What does real love look like?
